Pizza Punks uses sourdough for their pizza bases.

Packed full of flavour, this handcrafted San Franciscan dough is double fermented for 48hours before being cooked in authentic wood-fired ovens.

Customers also have the freedom to create their own pizza, with a choice of more than 50 unlimited toppings, hand-made on-site.

Pizza Punks offers a whole range of pizza choices and pasta dishes.

This is available for one flat fee.

Toppings range from the traditional basil, salami, ndjua sausage to more unique toppings like salt and chillli chicken,, chipotle pulled pork, avocado and black pudding.

There are also vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian and Halal options available.

For those not craving pizza there is also the option to create your own pasta dish, with a choice of sauces and unlimited selection of toppings.

kahlua and gomme.
